The Power of the InternetBy Carol Alt / Post / March 6, 2017
I was sitting having a coffee the other day with a friend of mine and the owner of the coffee shop walked by. We started chatting because he was from Italy, and of course I would use any chance I can get to practice my Italian. During the course of the conversation he looked down at my girlfriend’s hands. He said to her, “You know you have no white half of your nails– you are low in potassium.”
Her response was, “You know I saw that and I was wondering what that was.”
He said yes, that’s potassium and you need bananas or other sources of potassium and you should up your intake of vegetables.” She was just floored and so grateful to have an answer for her curiosity about her nails. I started to think. She could’ve just look that up online. You would be amazed the information online these days.
Anytime I have a question about anything, even if it’s something as curious as why I don’t have a half moon in my nail like everyone else, I just type that into the computer and voilà, it pops up online. I think many times we forget the power of the internet to help us with health issues. So we just let the health issue fester or we I guess at what we should do because we don’t have the time or the energy to go to the doctor.
Blogs like mine, or typing a specific question about your body into a browser can seriously give you some kind of direction to move in or a thread of research to follow. I guess this little reminder blog is just to never forget the power of the internet and helping you to research your health issues.
